Holistic Child Development India (HCDI) works with multiple funding partners. These partners finance many of the programmes and projects that are strategized with their input and implemented with the assistance of the implementing partners. This ensures that HCDI’s efforts are constantly well funded by organisations focused on child development and implemented by organisations that hold extensive experience in working in the regions where the projects are placed.
While the efforts of HCDI are funded by individual donations and corporate funding, both of which are now becoming increasingly important to its source of funding, HCDI is extremely grateful to the funding partners who finance many programmes, based on their choice and the need of the hour. The following are the funding partners;
2.The Institute of Cultural Affairs, Japan
The Institute of Cultural Affairs, Japan, better known as ICAJ, is located in Japan with affiliations with local organisations in over thirty nations since 1989. With human development at the core of its activities, ICA focuses on community development that is brought about by local participation – a strategy that aims to fulfil the organisation’s endeavour to obtain sustainable, long lasting, and independent development in underdeveloped regions. ICAJ has partnered with HCDI and funds multiple projects under the Emergency Response and Disaster Management Programmes. ICA funds the endeavours of HCDI by providing aid to disaster affected areas, with a focus on rehabilitation and increasing the ability and skills of the local population to encourage sustainable livelihood, along with protection and promotion of children’s basic rights.
Through the funding aid from MOFA, Japan and the people of Japan, ICAJ and HCDI implemented a large project in three phases in Bihar, where multipurpose community centers were constructed and the community has been empowered through capacity building trainings.
